Hello I'm Alan Calvert, welcome to my website

Hello I'm Alan Calvert

I have always been interested in working with wood including making furniture and items for the home. I was a teacher of Craft and Design in a local Comprehensive school until  I retired and could then focus my creative attention on making clocks and boxes. I am particularly interested in the work of Charles Rennie Macintosh and the Arts and Craft movements and latterly in Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.

 One of my large lattice clocks in the Macintosh style was commissioned by a church in Scotland and I have clocks in Europe and as far away as Australia.

Many of the motifs I use on my handmade clocks are based on Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s designs. Lately however, I have included some Arts and Crafts design motifs and the clocks based on them have been really popular.

I was also asked if I could design boxes by friends so I have included a page of some of the most popular on my site too, many of which are inspired by landscapes around where I live.

If you would like to order any of the  items on this site or need more information don’t hesitate to contact me as I make most of the items to order.
